Sometimes I wish I was more social or had more 'normal' interests (whatever that is). But then those thoughts quickly pass and I make something completely useless like miniature gift boxes to put under the knitted Charlie Brown Christmas Tree I made last week. Why is it that being tiny instantly makes something cute? I think it would be awesome to have a long-term miniature project like a whole hand-made house filled with hand-made miniature furniture and decorations. It would probably never really be finished. Learning tiny woodworking and painting tiny paintings would be so much fun! Someday I'll do it.
I made the patterns for these boxes in a free trial of Adobe Illustrator. There are two gingham patterns and two knit print patterns. I'm afraid to look to see how much Illustrator costs, but I think I have to have it. If you would be interested in making some of these yourself, I've made a PDF of the tiny boxes and you can find the knitting pattern on Ravelry. Oh, and there's no tape or glue necessary for the boxes!
